Doesn’t she look absolutely stunning? Katie came to me as she wanted something different on her wedding day. Originally Katie wanted to do her own hair but after discussing what kind of head piece she would be going for, this beautiful and bespoke Kat Swank number she decided to be pampered with that too!



We decided on a fresh vintage colour palette of champagne, nude, peach and brown with a strong focus on the skin. Having accentuated Katie’s fantastic cheekbones and highlighted accordingly I set about creating a subtle contoured 20’s smokey eye.



Clarins and Burts Bees were to hand for a pink flush on the lips. For Katie’s hair I finger brushed her gorgeous natural curls, creating some volume at the top, I then fitted the head piece and built pin curls around to disguise the band. The hair then flowed naturally into a low side ponytail.
